Mysuru landfill waste to be processed into RDF

In an attempt to clear the landfill site in Mysuru, the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) plans to treat 200,000 tonnes of waste. A small part of biodegradable waste will be used as compost, while the largest share will be converted into refuse-derived fuel (RDF) to be co-incinerated in cement kilns. This requires the installment of a separation system at the site. According to The Hindu, the MCC plans to complete the treatment of the 200,000 tonnes in 10 months.
